    I upgraded my servers MySql version and it told me some of my mysql passwords were stored using pre-4.1-style passwords. I updated all of them, except 2.

    One is cpldap (which a CP admin told me earlier it was OK to ignore that one since its not used anymore)
    The other is the user modsec

    I cant figure out how to "update the password encryption style" for the user modsec.

    I can't get into the Mod Security configuration in WHM because it can't connect. Is there an easy way to update the modsec password so it does it in all the neccessary files?

    I saw in some other posts that the unencrypted password for modsec is located in /etc/cron.hourly/ but I dont have that file, cause I havent even enabled mod sec yet.

    Im using WHM 11.46.0 (build 9), CENTOS 5.8 x86_64
